After the alpha-5 release we will update the python interpreter from 2.5.4 to
2.6.1.  For about 24 hours you will no be able to cleanly update jaunty, until
some packages are rebuilt with python2.6. For a better upgrade experience during
 this time, please add the pythoneers PPA to your sources.list, which already
has the rebuilds available:

  deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pythoneers/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Don't forget to remove this line after the change is complete; I will notice
u-d-a when the change is done for main. For universe you may experience
installability issues somewhat longer.
